Why's the image preview on mouseover bigger and clearer than the image itself?

Is the issue with https://www.artemisatusc.com/our-board? or my computer? I'm using Firefox and Windows 10.

This issue happens for every portrait on that website. I'll just showcase one.

Bigger image

But after I right click on the portrait and click "View Image", the actual image is smaller and lower quality. Why?

smaller preview image

Cannot access the big image, but most likely the bigger image and the smaller one (visible initially and accessible through View Image) are different resources. This is quite normal because the site wants to deliver as few bytes as possible, thus delivering small images as preview and only loading bigger ones when clicking on them. Alexei‭ about 1 month ago
